A Catalogue of Small Pains

 “Through innovative structure (via borrowings from old educational filmstrips and homemaking instruction manuals, among other sources), Meghan L. Dowling’s formidable novel examines the effects of transgenerational trauma and pulls away the veil of long-held secrets. This incisive and edifying narrative establishes the necessity of interrogating our pasts, our ‘memories inherited like fair skin or crooked teeth,’ in order that we, too, might consider how our mothers, our grandmothers—all women over time—have been mistreated and silenced, and how essential it is to make these stories known.” 

—Sara Veglahn, author of The Mayflies and The Ladies
